Kimmo Pohjonen/Accordion Wrestling

Finland's Pohjonen is an utterly stunning live performer – 'the Jimi Hendrix of the squeezebox' say some. He extends the range of the five-row accordion into terrifying areas, drawing from ambient music, club culture and modern art as much as the folk tradition. Renowned for his edgy in situ live shows in quarries and on farms, the wrestling theme here literally combines wrestling with Pohjonen's live reactive/interactive soundtrack wheezing and whooshing along with visceral results.
